Cuando los pájaros entran en coma

.
Has not it happened to you that you want to react, give a heartbreaking cry and never stop? The current society is immersed in a crisis, joining the economic to the values, perhaps the most important. Everything for which our ancestors had fought (equality, freedom and fraternity) has been strongly threatened in the midst of these states that only seek 'sheep', rather than citizens capable of thinking for themselves. In the midst of this climate, two possibilities arise: either resign yourself or give a radical turn to your life and make your closest beings give it.

R.A. speaks of this cry and of this necessary change. Raga in his novel: When the birds go into a coma. In it, the Valencian author makes his characters jump, qualifies them as misfits in a society that does not encourage their abilities but that sums it in a deep vital boredom. There resurface personalities such as Jacques, a young boy who apparently has everything but does not conform to statism and what he has done so far with his life. When the birds go into a coma, it represents a radical change in Raga's writing style, since it combines the mechanisms of the detective novel, expressed in the interrogations to which the friends and acquaintances of Jacques are subjected after his sudden death, with the fragments of the protagonist's diary, deeper and in which there are continuous reflections to the world of art and literature, and the monologues of the remaining friends who talk about themselves and their relationship with the rest. This combination is perfectly assembled, to the point that this novel is more addictive than the previous one, although the two make you think long and hard.

The fragments culled from Jacques' diary are really shocking in some cases, because the author manages to immerse himself completely in the mind of a person tired of the world, and who does not feel comfortable in him. Jacques is a scholar, and his journals do not escape his reflections on various topics such as the case of committed literature. Does the writer have a social function with his lyrics? Is the writer a person who has to promote change? Can books help us change the world?

These and other issues are the debate of this novel about the crisis, about how it is necessary to promote a change from the ideas that our elders have built over time, about how much we as human beings could do from our conventions.
